College and Career Resources

Preparing for College – guide to post-high school education

Family Connection is a comprehensive website that you and your child can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers. Family Connection is linked with College Planner, a service we use in our office to track and analyze data about college, so it provides up-to-date information that’s specific to our school.
  • Research colleges: Compare GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from our school for students who have applied and been admitted in the past.
  • College visits: Find out which colleges are visiting our school.
  • Communication: Family Connection lets us share information with you and your child about upcoming events and other web resources for college and career information.
  • College Searches:  Family Connection has an awesome college search feature where you can search for schools by a multiple of variables.
   To log in, use the username and password your son or daughter has created.  Starting this year, we are requiring students to use their Goshen Schools Gmail address.  Contact your student’s counselor if you have any questions.


Today’s students will need more than a high school diploma to get ahead. The Learn More Resource CenterIndiana’s Pre-K to College Connection, helps Hoosiers of all ages realize a better future. Follow the link to find information, tools, opportunities, and support.

College Board has a wealth of information to prepare for college and the SAT test.
